Marc Beaudin is a poet, theatre artist and ABAA bookseller living in the writer’s haven of Livingston, Montana, dubbed “America’s finest open air asylum” for multiple reasons. A recipient of an Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Foundation artist residency, he has had work published in numerous journals and anthologies. His latest book, Vagabond Song, was called a “jazzy, freewheeling, rollicking road trip into the beating heart of the Eternal Now” by the Montana Quarterly. He thinks it would be a good idea for you to read Ulysses and listen to the Northwoods Improvisers. He believes the Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D is more powerful than all the guns, smokestacks and coal trains in the world.
